ScrapFX DT “Threads ” A mixed media art journal page using transparency

by Danielle Scholz | 0 comments

Hello Lovelies,

Dannii here again for my first art journal page for May.

I have a wonderful arty page inspired by the ScrapFX transparency faces collage. To be honest I have been sitting on this Transparency for such a long time I fell in love with the images the first time I saw it and I have just been waiting for inspiration to come so I could use them. So today was the day to pull them out of the stash and use them. You mustn’t  hoard such pretty things.

I used my gel plate to get a quick and textured background down and played with several different ScrapFX stamps and stencils and transparency

here’s the end result:

 

You can watch the Youtube tutorial here:

As always I hope you found some inspiration with my tutorial and give some of these ScrapFX products a go. Please leave a comment and lets us know what you think of these pages and products, and don’t forget to show off your creations on the Scrap FX creative space on Facebook.

Until next time

Keep being Arty .

Hi Peeps!

This month I’m trying to bust my stash so I’m pulling out lots of bits and bobs from my scrap FX stash and doing my best to use them up… So watch out for my post this month to see what I have used.

First up is a scrapbook page I created on a recent retreat, The challenge was to use the die cut Title Love Ulong Time (as the retreat was in Ulong!)

From there I busted into the stash of Scrap FX stamps, stencils and quotes. Plus a TON of neon paint!

I have used,

-Seaweed stencil

-Journey Kraft Words

-Mesh & Pavement rice paper

-Heart light

                                                                                                                                                                                                                           

I also created an Art journal Page “Fly” with leftover bits n bobs and the super cool dot stamp, mesh and pavement rice paper, Journey Words stencil, Fountain Pen rice paper, plus a Warrior Image from Michelle Grant Designs

Thanks for stopping by!

Until Next time

 

Loving Life…..By Belinda Lowe

by Belinda Lowe | 0 comments

Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

It’s a bit of a milestone in a parents life when they get to enjoy “Adult Things” with their children. For me it’s about learning how to create a different type of relationship with my children…..and documenting it

So therefore I have a layout to share with you today, I hope you like it.

I have created this layout using the following products: Storybook Rice paper, Scribble Faces B Collage, Seaweed Stamp, Loving Life and Mark Making F Dots and Rectangles

     

And here are a few of the products I used close up

With the chipboard title I simply coloured it with Alcohol Ink pens and then added Glossy Accents over it

The Seaweed Stamp was stamped with White Ink and then bits painted with White Paint – I simply just wanted it to be there but just slightly on the background because I wanted the focus to be on the face. Isn’t it amazing how everyone has done something completely different with this stencil (looking back on past posts)

And the face…….what a beauty, I coloured the lips with Scribble Sticks and a wee bit of water

And lastly we have the torn pieces of the Storybook Rice paper with the Mark Making stencil (in the pink) that was slightly rubbed on with Distress Oxide

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have been inspired to play along with all your new and old Scrap FX goodies!

Make sure you stop by the Scrap FX Creative Space

on facebook to post all your Scrap FX related projects and to keep up to date with all the new releases

Happy Scrappy Days!!!

Art Journal Page: Pop Art Penelope with Karen Y

by Karen Yates | 0 comments

Hey Everyone!!

My turn on the blog today, and I have been playing around in my Junk Journal!!

I have used some older goodies along with some new ones to create my journal page featuring Pop Art Penelope.

I think she is so cool, so yeah I had to use her in this project!

As Always I have a video for you, so you can watch my process of procraftinating!!

I had no idea where this was going to end up when I started, I just new a few bits that I wanted to use and play with!! So just click on the picture below and you will go off to Scrap FX’s Youtube channel.

And here is the list of the wonderful products I used in my project:

For this post, I wanted to show how you can layer leftover bits of chipboard, that we all seem to hoard and never throw out (well, I do!)

To start this layout I used the Rustic collage stencil  Rustic collage stencil  with a paste made of paint, plaster and gesso.  I did spray the texture paste with Lindys Moonshadow Tawny Turquoise but does not show up in the photo.  I rubbed a bit of brown paint over the texture to tone down the bright teal colour.

I’ve had this paper sooooo long in my stash (I just love it) but thought it was time to use it, and enjoy it, instead of hiding away in my paper stash.

I started with one large basic piece of chipboard, the floral frameFloral frameand built up all the little bits and pieces, either left over, or broken from storing in my draw:

Laurel Vine  Flourish 19 Wing  Wildflower frame SMALL

Laurel Vine                                               Flourish 19                                Wildflower frame

I layered some papers under the photo and stuck it to the background paper, then swiped white paint over the chipboard pieces, not covering them all over, then glued them on top of my photo layers.

I found the appropriate mini word in my drawer stash:  Square Words MINI - Click Image to Close mini square words, and embossed this in white, which makes it really stand out.

For the bottom corner I used a partial bit of the Art Nouveau flourish  Art Nouveau Flourish  swiped with white paint, some mini leaf buttons Leaf Buttons, miniswiped with white paint or neon orange (to match the background paper).  Added some Leaves covered with book paper, edged with olive green pigment inkLeaves, mixed.  To finish off I found some little cardboard words in my stash and glued them on the bottom chipboard collage.  Done!

How gorgeous is this layered chipboard?  Great way to de-stash, with wonderful results.

 

“I am the Queen of Me” by Ros Aggett-Madley

Hi everyone.

Am sharing a little journal page today

This one started with a messy page.  I’d used the reverse of the Leaf Stencil that had spray on it from a previous project.  I’ve then painted around the outside of this and added some gesso with the Hearty Stencil.

Black gesso and gold paint has been used to colour both the Frog Prince and the Leaf Arrangement.

The Butterfly has been cut from the Butterflies Transparency and the back of this has been painted in gold.

The Doodled Feather stamp was used in the background.

The title on the page has been cut from the Queen of Hustle Rice Paper and adhered with matte medium.

Hope you’ve been inspired ♥

Strut Your Stuff By Amy

by Amy Turner | 1 Comment

Hey everyone!

Hope you are all keeping well.
We are still in a lockdown here in Ontario which is difficult on everyone so a nice distraction was getting
a package in the mail from Australia!!

I was super excited to get the new seaweed stamp and stencil!

Ok, seaweed for some
but all I could picture was peacock feathers!

I played around with the stamp and stencil in my art journal first.
I also added some pretty colourful pieces by Michelle Logan from Scrap FX.

Seaweed Stamp 

Flowery Bits

Happy Houses by Michelle Logan

 Then I decided I was going to try to make a peacock! lol Hmm what did I have that may resemble a peacock lying
around the house?!?

Well, the easter eggs I made last month, some putty stuff that you use to hang pictures and a couple bolts of course!

I did toy with the idea of trying some clay I had sitting around but it required baking and well… my plastic egg wouldn’t
bake too well and I’m impatient.

Ain’t nobody got time to wait 30 mins to bake clay and then wait for it to harden!! lol

I rolled the putty stuff up and made a head and neck for my peacock and then I smooshed it on to the top of the egg, just stretching some of the neck over the egg.

Then I painted it a royal blue colour and the egg a teal blue.

Hmm what looks like the crown on the peacock?
Well a piece of the Leaf Arrangement chip of course.

Leaf Arrangement

I cut a piece of it off and stuck it in to the head and painted it as well.

Next I stamped and stencilled with the seaweed aka peacock feather stencil and stamp using different shades of teal and purple. I cut them out and then glued them on to the back of the peacock.

I also glued the bolts to the egg. I used glossy  accents for this for a good stick.

I also cheated and used some duct tape
on the bottom of the egg for a little more support. I painted it the same teal afterwards so it blended in.

After it all had dried, I added some white paint, gold pen and black marker to the head to add some eyes and the beak and some details.
And I added some more “feathers” to the back of it.
And actually to my amazement it does sort of look like a peacock!!

Keep safe and well folks! 🙂

 

“The Sea” mixed media art journal mini book by Heike

by Heike Bruhn | Comments Off on “The Sea” mixed media art journal mini book by Heike

Hello everyone,

and welcome to my second blog post in the month of April for the company Scrap FX Australia.

I am Heike from Heike’s AugenBlick and I am your host for today.

Finally our lockdown here in The Netherlands which started on December 15th, 2020

will be lightened a little bit.

The children are now allowed to go to school twice a week.

We are allowed to do group sports outside.

We can have two people at the same time at home for a visit.

Unfortunately the numbers of infection are still extremely high and the hospitals are also very busy.

But our politicians hope that the people will still follow the Covid-19 rules.

I have decided for myself that I will stick on the stay at home rule and I hope that

it is possible that I will also get my Covid-19 vaccination quickly.

But anyway……..

I created for you as inspiration another one sheet paper mixed media art journal mini book.

But the size is a little bit different. The pages are long and small.

The theme from my book is “The Sea”

This is my first page:

I used the seaweed stamp with black embossing powder and I painted the seaweed paddels
with red, white and yellow acrylic color.
Some transparency and collage paper from Scrap Fx for my embellishments.
On the next page:
Die Erde (= the earth),  as collage paper, transparency and a beautiful silhouette from ScrapFx.
The next page:
Also a piece of the earth collage paper and my embossed 9dots embellishments.
And again the beautiful seaweed stamp.
On the backsite I used a different color combination more light rose and yellow.
I used from Scrap Fx:

Fern Leaf stamp

Flower Power stamps

Seaweed stamp

9 Dots stamp

Hypnotic Circles stamp

Ancient Map B collage papier

Art Inspiration rice paper

Face Features rice paper

Faces Collage transparency

Label Maker Positive transparency

Antiquities transparency

Compass BLACK silhouette

Sailing Bottle BLACK silhouette

Kraft Paper Phares
Thank you so much for your visit today.
Stay safe.
xoxo

 

All Geared Up…..By Belinda Lowe

by Belinda Lowe | Comments Off on All Geared Up…..By Belinda Lowe

Good Morning Scrap FX Fans,

Have you created a “MAN” page lately? I am definitely guilty of not scrapping my husband, sometimes we forget the men in our lives in favour of “cuter” subjects

I have a layout to share with you today, I hope you like it.

I have created this layout using the following products: #teenphrases, 2020 Year Pack, Pointing Hands, Kimberley Aerial Collage and All Geared Up

    

Here are some close ups – I decided to leave the chipboard raw for this layout to keep it more masculine and I used the whole collage image

Pointing Hands to highlight the main subject of the layout

The title adhered to the collage paper

Amazeballs……..cause I could only imagine what it would be like to have this as your view at your workplace

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope you have been inspired to play along with all your new and old Scrap FX goodies!

Make sure you stop by the Scrap FX Creative Space on facebook to post all your Scrap FX related projects and to keep up to date with all the new releases

Happy Scrappy Days!!!

Loving Life, by Chantale

by Chantale Gagnon | Comments Off on Loving Life, by Chantale

Hello everyone,

Today I present to you a page featuring good friends of ours, my partner and I on vacation in Las Vegas.

I love this photo and wanted to immortalize it.

I unfortunately forgot to take all the photos of my creation process, sometimes when you are too focused, you forget, but I love the final result.

I made my stamps on white paper with colored ink.  and embossed with clear powder. 

Then I cut the stamp, I hate working with scissors but I tried my best because I wanted this result.

I don’t regret doing it haha!

Now it was time to make my page.

I made my background with Lindy’s spray and used the new round stamp with black ink.

A little turquoise paste and up, I placed my ornaments there. 

For the rest, I have no more picture, sorry.

For this layout, I used:
